Light Sensitive Paper

I really enjoyed making these light sensitive
pictures.  I got the paper off Amazon and collected leaves and flowers on a walk in the woods.

The paper was really easy to use.  I first tried out different positions on scrap paper and then laid it out onto the light sensitive paper for real. Positioning it in bright sunlight for 5 minutes changed the colour of the paper.  I finally removed the flowers and wet the paper in just cold water.  This 'fixed' it so it wouldn't develop any further.

In the future I might try it with lace and old fashioned shaped keys.  - I will keep you posted on how these turn out.
They look really nice framed in my bathroom.  
Let me know what you think
Do you have any other ideas of what I could use?

The Green Man

This is a card I made for my husband.  It's the image of The Green Man.
I cut card in the different shapes, then I painted over them using acrylic paint and then layered it on the card.
